Fred Dibnah Remembered
What's it all about?
In 2004 Great Brittan has lost one of its greatest characters, Fred Dibnah the famous Steeplejack from Bolton.
We were honoured that in the early 1990s our film crews had the opportunity to spend a 12 month period filming the life of Fred Dibnah. This was when Fred was still working as a Steeplejack, and earning a living climbing up, and knocking down chimneys. Our film was made shortly after Fred’s hit BBC 2 series “A year with Fred”, and includes rare footage of the Fred Dibnah a nation came to love.
